Finals have brought on a crazy week so please excuse the briefness of this article. The Green Bay Packers will look to wrap up the division title against the Chicago Bears on Sunday. Here are some key notes and match ups to watch for. The Packers must get the same running success they had last week against the Lions.  The Bears defense is one of the best in the league so that will be difficult, but the running game for Green Bay looked very solid last week and if they get that same performance this week the game tips heavily towards the Packers. Green Bay will also have to look to slow down the Bears pass rush.  Chicago’s defense is strong enough and gets many takeaways, so the last thing the Packers need is to have the Bears in Rodger’s face all game, forcing him to make bad throws against that strong Bears defense. The Packers must also limit Brandon Marshall’s impact on the game.  The first time these two teams played, Marshall wasn’t much of a factor and the Packers will need that to be the case again. Getting pressure on Culter and forcing him to make bad throws is also a high priority for the Packers defense.  Last game, the Packers got to Cutler and not only sacked him a couple times, also picked him off a couple times.  More of this will be great. This is a “win and you’re in” situation for the Packers and it would make it extra sweet with the playoff clincher coming against the Bears.  Being on the road against a desperate Bears team will make this a very tough game, but the Packers pull out a close one, 24-21, and take the division title and seal their spot in the playoffs. Again, sorry for the very brief article, the articles should be back to normal starting with the game wrap up Sunday afternoon.
